At Dental Haus, we provide comprehensive check-up and cleans for Palm Beach patients.
Most people will need to see our dentist every six months, but if you have great oral health then we may not need to see you as often.
A dental check-up and clean is a preventative measure to help maintain good oral health. The procedure involves a thorough examination of your mouth, teeth and gums, as well as a professional clean to remove any plaque or tartar build-up. Check-ups and cleans can help identify and prevent more serious dental problems from developing.
The cleaning process will involve removing all the plaque or tartar from your teeth. A dentist carries this out using a scaler, which is a small hand-held tool that vibrates and breaks up the plaque or tartar. The area will then be rinsed and polished to leave your teeth looking clean and sparkling. It’s amazing what such a simple procedure can achieve.
A dental clean can help remove any surface staining from your teeth, leaving them looking brighter and more polished. However, if you’re looking for a more significant change in the colour of your teeth, then you may want to consider other cosmetic treatments, such as teeth whitening.
X-rays may be taken during a check-up and clean, depending on the condition of your teeth and gums. X-rays can help to identify any problems that may not be visible to the naked eye, such as internal decay or infection. It essentially provides us with a window inside your teeth, so we can really see what’s happening. You can opt not to have x-rays as part of your treatment; however, we strongly recommend it. Over time, x-rays can also help us monitor the ongoing health of your teeth and gums and identify any changes that may be occurring.
